We ought to expect people to become Christians more than we do. God is still seeking and saving the lost. Some of the seed that we sow will fall on good soul. Let’s earnestly pray that God would use the weekly preaching to save the lost. Let’s pray and pray that God would use our witness to save the lost.
Perhaps God has been stirring up your heart in recent days. You are becoming curious about Jesus and want to see what following him means. Turn from your past, and place your trust in him. He will never let you down.
If you’re not yet a Christian, please understand that Jesus is passing you by right now. You don’t need to earn his mercy: you cannot. It is free. All you have to do is cry out to Jesus in prayer right now.
Even as believers, we constantly need Jesus’ mercy of Jesus. So, let’s pause, and hear his question one more time: ‘What do you want me to do for you?’
Salvation is from the Lord and he can break the hold that the love and pursuit of money has on people. May God be at work in more and more people in our communities, freeing them from their idols, causing them to see their own sin, to turn from it, and put their trust in Jesus as Saviour and Lord.
Young children are helpless and dependent; that’s exactly how Jesus wants you to come to him! He wants you to come to him in your helplessness and in total dependence. Christianity is not about what you can to for God, but about what God can do for you. It is not about your status, but about his grace.
It may be that we go through months, and even years, in a spiritual wilderness, becoming cynical about the Christian faith, doubting that God is in control and doubting his promises. It’s vital that we keep our focus on the beauty, sacrifice, love and grace of Jesus. It’s vital that he, and he alone, is the object of our faith.
